Table of Contents:
By July of 1968, the British blues band The Yardbirds had played their last concert, leaving newcomer guitarist, Jimmy Page, with a manager, some contracts and a name. Page and manager Peter Grant determined to create a new band a phoenix of gargantuan proportions Led Zeppelin. From their first concerts in Scandinavia to their final sad separation, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, John Bonham and manager Peter Grant proved themselves to be consummate professionals, especially in the way they presented themselves to the media. For twelve years the music tabloids and mainstream press followed the bands every move, extracting interviews at any opportunity. Thousands of fans around the world kept abreast of their movements through the press, especially in the United Kingdom where radio was still a government monopoly. In "Led Zeppelin - The Press reports".... noted Led Zeppelin expert Robert Godwin has collected and reviewed over a thousand articles from around the globe. Reports of the bands activities from Tokyo to New York and from Sydney to London are compiled and collated in chronological order.
